System implementation can only take place after the completion of a successful supply chain system selection and procurement phase. We are able to help you in the project management of this task and to avoid many of the pitfalls: systems implementations are notorious for exceeding timescales and going over budget, some fail completely. Our experience can minimise your risk.
To achieve an effective system implementation you need a full time ‘Implementation Structure Organisation’. We favour a Project Steering Group, Project Team, Project Manager, System Owner and Key Users, consisting of the most experienced people from within your organisation in key roles. System implementation needs to be over managed - not providing enough resource is often a cause of problems.
In the system set up we believe there should be a minimum of 3 system environments: training, testing and production (live). Careful planning is required on how the cut over to live running will be made. Will there first be a smaller scale pilot implementation? Will a period of parallel running be possible?
